This question is addressed to any member of this community.
If you were to write a brief note to your younger self, with the intent to make a better experience of learning to code in Elisp, what it would be?
Mine would be:
do not try to learn by reading the tutorials from cover to cover. You will be bored out of your mind and learn nothing. It would be like learning to drive by reading the car’s owner manual.
I found that by reading other people code before going to the manual, even with 0% understanding, is a better way to bootstrap the process. What it counts I think is the effort to read code. It anchors the brain to something practical. In a sense, it would be like studying physics by going to the exercise section first, and after having read them, the brain is better primed to absorb the material in the the chapter.
I thank you in advance for any advice in this matter.
